    Hi,
    I checked the group for this problem but didn't find a thread for it, but if
    it has been dealt with (and it probably has ..), then I'm sorry but I
    haven't found it.

    I'm running IE7/ Windows XP Home Edition/ all Microsoft updates in place.
    My problem is I'm seeing Red x's on websites instead of images. I have Show
    Pictures checked in IE7, and all Temporary Internet Files have been deleted
    (I do this daily).
    My Firewall has been checked and doesn't seem to be causing the problem.
    Can someone help please?
    Many thanks.
    Anne

    This has been discussed numerous times before, but perhaps not in this NG.
    It can be caused by various things, most likely a pop-up blocker. Disable
    your pop-up blocker and see if that works. Otherwise, one of the experts
    here can give you some links.

    This is all ancient and irrelevant stuff..

    I have the same issue, people know about it, but there is very little
    resolution other than throwing down whatever KB articles are out there on
    IE5-6 and some registry hacks that are pretty old..

    Annie,

    if you right click on the explorer icon and do "run as administrator" and
    then go to your site, do the pictures appear?
    If they do you are EXACTLY at the point I am at, which is a dead end..

    People of alluded to the fact that the bug exists and we 'hope" microsoft
    will take care of it, but there isn't even a kb article yet acknowledging
    there is an issue. It was supposed to be fixed in 6 but evidently not.

    MVP Please help.

    Lets try to compare facts...

    Has anything been changed recently?

    The only thing I can think of that has affected my box is the recent java
    updates from SUN.
    I am running Java Standard Edition 6 v1.6

    If you go to control panels and click on Java, hit the general tab, and then
    'About" which will give you version info.

    Hi,
    Go to IE> Tools> Manage add-ons and disable all browser add-ons. Close and
    re-open IE. Try some websites. Any change?

    Next, turn on the Windows Firewall from Control Panel> Windows Firewall and
    disable your third-party firewall or security suite. The easy way to disable
    the program(s) may be Start> Run> (type in) msconfig> Startup tab. Uncheck
    entries related to these programs. Restart. Any change?

    Are you running any security / antispyware programs which might be blocking
    images in an attempt to block ads?

    Hope this helps,

    Hi,
    Are you sure that all third-party security programs and the firewall were
    disabled, as a test? Some of these are difficult to terminate.

    How about posting your Running Tasks? Start> Run> (type in) msinfo32 Go to
    Software Environment> Running Tasks. Click in the right pane then Crtl a
    (select all) then Ctrl c (copy.) Paste the list into your reply.

    Hello,
    I don't use browser add-ons, and I'm already using Windows Firewall for the
    time being.
    My antispyware programs aren't running all the time,I use them 2ce a week.
    Thank you for the input though,

    Come on,
    "This page was last modified on 07/06/2005 18:43:55 "

    IE7 wasn't even a beta.

    All im saying is that if you look through all the forums on the web, these
    types of pages get tossed around like the authoirty of all that is wrong.
    There are several articles about .pngs and overlays (whatever that is) and
    quite a few speaking about this issue. They all get pointed to KB articles
    referring to IE5-6 along with Windows XP, IE7 (and in my case IE7 with
    Vista) is a totally different animal with similarities

    Thats all im saying...

    I had to dig this up...

    This post at least implies that it is a known issue somewhere...
    If that is the case, how do we get it escalated?

    Subject: IE7 PNG Images Do Not Display
    To: microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general

    Hello All,

    I have done some research on this issue and it is not a registry
    problem. The problem lays in the User Account Control (UAC). Windows
    Vista only has 1 true Adninistrator Account which is hidden by
    default, even if you create a new Adminstrator account you still won't
    see the images. If you want to view .png images, turn off UAC. After
    turning off UAC goto a site with .png's and see if you can view them.

    Hopefully Microsoft will fix this issue in one of their upcoming
    updates.
    - - -
    Obviously, running with User Account Control disabled is not recommended,
    but I haven't seen another solution.

    Not a solution, but, another poster wrote that the problem started after
    installing Firefox.

    Hope this helps,

  13. What if you right click the IE icon on the desktop and choose Start Without
    Add-ons?
    Or go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
    Explorer (No Add-ons).

    Hi,
    I don't see any of the possible culprits I was expecting. I'm surprised that
    the no images / red x problem persisted through a reinstall of Windows XP.
    I'm wondering why Registry Booster is a running task. I can understand
    running Registry Booster occasionally, but it doesn't seem like it needs to
    be loading at each startup.

    Try disabling Registry Booster from within the program's settings or from
    Start> Run> MSCONFIG> Startup tab. Restart and see if that changes anything.

    Are you seeing *no* images at any website? While displaying one of these
    pages, hit Ctrl+F5 for a forced refresh. Does that help?

    Hello,
    Here you are, the list you asked for.
    I hope you can understand all this,
    Thanks again,

  15. Hi Anne,

    That was bad link to post to actually illustrate the problem you have
    described(image placeholder icons instead of images). Everyone should see
    red X's instead of images at that site on 4 of the images because they are
    either not available on the server or the Path to the images is wrong in the
    Html document.

    For purposes of this discussion, it would be better to post a link that
    better illustrates your individual problem of placeholder icons appearing
    instead of images.

    Good luck,

    Donald Anadell



    Hello,
    This is a link for the site I get red x's on, but there are several more
    sites too.
    http://www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/3131/midis.html
    Registry Booster isn't the cause, I only reinstalled that a couple of days
    ago and the problem was there beforehand. I will stop it running though, I
    never gave that a thought.
    On other sites I have a different icon, which tells me the Show Pictures
    setting has been disabled which it hasn't been, butanyway that wouldn't show
    pictures anywhere.
    This problem only came with the installation of IE7, which I was running
    before the reinstall which makes me think I have a setting wrong somewhere,
    or have I?

    Anne

    Hello,
    I don't use browser add-ons, and I'm already using Windows Firewall for the
    time being.
    My antispyware programs aren't running all the time,I use them 2ce a week.
    Thank you for the input though,

    Hello,
    This is a link for the site I get red x's on, but there are several more
    sites too.
    http://www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/3131/midis.html
    Registry Booster isn't the cause, I only reinstalled that a couple of days
    ago and the problem was there beforehand. I will stop it running though, I
    never gave that a thought.
    On other sites I have a different icon, which tells me the Show Pictures
    setting has been disabled which it hasn't been, butanyway that wouldn't show
    pictures anywhere.
    This problem only came with the installation of IE7, which I was running
    before the reinstall which makes me think I have a setting wrong somewhere,
    or have I?

    Hi,
    I don't see any of the possible culprits I was expecting. I'm surprised that
    the no images / red x problem persisted through a reinstall of Windows XP.
    I'm wondering why Registry Booster is a running task. I can understand
    running Registry Booster occasionally, but it doesn't seem like it needs to
    be loading at each startup.

    Try disabling Registry Booster from within the program's settings or from
    Start> Run> MSCONFIG> Startup tab. Restart and see if that changes anything.

    Are you seeing *no* images at any website? While displaying one of these
    pages, hit Ctrl+F5 for a forced refresh. Does that help?


    Hello,
    Here you are, the list you asked for.

    Annie (OP in this thread) made no reference whatsoever to PNG files and
    she's running WinXP, not Vista.

    The "red x" phenomenon has nothing whatsoever to do with IE7 nor is this an
    IE7-specific newsgroup.

    Hi,
    Great! Thanks for the update.

    Don

    Hi Don,
    I have the problem sorted out now, thanks to Don Anadell, who advised me to
    check the registry for, - ...HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet
    Explorer\Main
    String Value = Display Inline images,
    Data Value "yes" = "Show pictures" (has been checkmarked)
    Data Value "no" = "Show pictures" (has been unchecked)
    Which I did, and found my registry entry showing as .... Display Inline
    Image ... REG_SZ ....yes DataValue"yes"+1=+Show Pictures%20% ... obviously
    wrong, and so with Don *walking" me through re modifying the registry, with
    screen shots, I now have my images back!

    I have to thank you for your input and help, it's very much appreciated. (As
    was Pa Bear's).

    I'd be sitting in a padded cell by the weekend if I hadn't cleared the
    problem up! <g>

    This is not hogwash whatsoever. I've had this vexing issue for over a two
    years and have tried everthing. Once, going into the registry pursuant to
    one of the link recommendations, did help for red X images on a CD. However,
    I am still plagued with the issue in other contexts. So "hogwash" = hogwash.
